Redwood City to reopen playgrounds Oct. 13

in A&E/Community

Redwood City’s playgrounds will reopen to the public on Tuesday, Oct. 13, the city announced today.

While California gave the green light for playgrounds to reopen on Sept. 29, the city has been working to ensure theirs comply with California Dept. of Public Health reopening guidelines.

“We’re printing signage, installing hand-washing stations, stocking supplies, removing fencing, opening restrooms, and getting our protocols tuned-up,” the city said. “While playgrounds will look the same, things are going to be different. While we know you are anxious, we appreciate your patience as we implement the final steps necessary in order to re-open.”

Of course, the city doesn’t have the resources to monitor all playgrounds and disinfect each daily or in-between uses.

“We are doing our best to present the rules, provide some sanitation and open restrooms, and are disinfecting playgrounds at least once a week, but keeping these playgrounds open is ultimately up to you,” city officials said.

So pay attention to the posted health and safety guidelines, which includes wearing face coverings, social distancing, respecting playground capacity limits and limiting your use to 30 minutes if others are waiting.
